Well lets put it this way Frank, I would have gotten change from a Fifty Pound note.....

On this road trip went on a winery tour and went to 4 wineries..... Was able to buy a Case (12) of very nice White for $125.00.....

Good Morning Paul and Frank.....

:P Frank I am sure that if I offered you 70 Pounds for every 50 Pound Note you could find I would be flooded with them...... :silly:

Thanks Paul yes it will be one of the centers of my collection..... To find a NAMED piece of uniform is extremely hard..... I have a Tunic and pair of Pants to Lt. Percy Fall who was an Officer in the Strathcona's but it is not named though I do have providence .....

Thanks again to you both......

Paul,
You would not believe what some Canadian collectors are prepared to pay for that little badge and it is indeed tiny! (the collar badge was even smaller!)

Frank,
I assume it is quite a rare item then?
